A few years ago, the world celebrated another great discovery that comes the second in importance after king Tut's in 1922, it is completely different though, it is a world's heritage site like the valley of the kings, however, the Pharaohs had no clue how to find such place. It is the Whales valley in the Western Egyptian desert with much older history than the ancient Egyptian civilization.
In the Whales valley the one sees the history of our beautiful planet and how it used to look like 200 million years ago before mankind. The Whales lived on the land not in the water, yes, that was millions of years ago, and this was proved by the newly discovered wadi with over 400 fossilized whales.
